In the five months since the disaster struck, people have turned in thousands of wallets found in the debris, containing $48 million in cash. More than 5,700 safes that washed ashore along Japan’s tsunami-ravaged coast have also been hauled to police centers by volunteers and search and rescue crews. Inside those safes officials found $30 million in cash. One safe alone, contained the equivalent of $1 million.
This is spectacular! Imagine that, the money that was found was returned to the police who then tracked down the owners and returned the belongings back to them. In a time when people have lost pretty much their life’s work and have nothing left, getting back some of their money back will surely help them get back on their foot again. Its brilliant!
I know for sure that this would have NOT been the case if it happened else where. There is hope for humanity after all!
